Storyline

Aladdin is a poor street urchin who spends his time stealing food from the marketplace in the city of Agrabah. His adventures begin when he meets a young girl who happens to be Princess Jasmine, who is forced to be married by her wacky yet estranged father. Aladdin's luck suddenly changes when he retrieves a magical lamp from the Cave of Wonders. What he unwittingly gets is a fun-loving genie who only wishes to have his freedom. Little do they know is that the Sultan's sinister advisor Jafar has his own plans for both Aladdin and the lamp. Written by Blazer346

Trivia

Part of the plot revolves around Jafar seeking Aladdin as he is the only one able to enter the Cave of Wonders and retrieve a valuable item inside; Aladdin finds the lamp and narrowly avoids dying inside the cave. This resembles the plot in an earlier Disney classic, The Rescuers (1977), in which Madame Medusa uses an orphan girl small enough to fit through the opening of a dangerous pirate's cave to retrieve the Devil's Eye diamond inside. Penny and her rescuers exit the cave with the jewel after they narrowly avoid drowning. Sometime after clutching their sought-out treasures, Madame Medusa and Jafar both deliver the exact same line: "It's mine. It's all mine!" See more »

Goofs

When Iago, disguised as a flamingo, calls out to Aladdin as Jasmine, he attracts the attention of a dopey-looking flamingo behind him. However, that flamingo was not there in the long shot of the garden that directly preceded the medium shot of the disguised Iago. See more »

User Reviews

 
Great songs and a good villain make "Aladdin" a Disney classic.
23 October 2004 | by Boba_Fett1138See all my reviews

This movie has three elements that are important for an animated Disney movie: Great songs, a good villain and a great sidekick.

The songs and music in general are just great and very memorable. Jafar is a great villain mainly because he is voiced by Jonathan Freeman who has got a good and scary voice. But what is maybe the best element of the movie is Robin Williams as the blue genie. The blue genie is like a jokemachine that once it is started can't stop again and keeps you laughing.

The story is good and the pace is high. "Aladdin" is not too short and it's not too long, it's not too immature and it's not too mature, it's a perfect movie for the entire family with a wonderful love story (even though it's no "Beauty and the Beast") and good animations with some good looking early computer effects.

9/10
